I think it's starting to work!
I managed to swim my first 1km the other day! After only starting to learn how to swim about 6 months ago, in the last couple of swims it's all starting to click into place now. I think I've settled on my rythm and it's burning into my muscle memory so that I can focus on fine tuning my body position.
I'm so excited about this because I always wanted to learn how to swim properly, and now I have this crazy idea of doing a triathelon stuck in my head!
Thanks for all your help guys, and I look forward to fine tuning my stroke over the next 12 months or so.
